3:02 am
wear a kerr chief because it's very wet. steve: a lot of schools have been cancelled for the day. if you are in, sit back, relax beings and enjoy the news. we start with a fox news alert. later today the attorney general of the united states of america is going to attend the 26th annual law enforcement legislative day in sacramento, california. what's he going to do? essentially he is going to say california, you are breaking so many laws we are going to crack down on you. in particular, recently, the state of california passed three laws to essentially make sure that that sanctuary state does not work with federal ice agents. brian: that's shannon bream out there last night. focused on that. with her legal back imrowns bac. california mind set, fastest thing in california on the rise is homelessness. they decide they are going to focus more on in this case the illegals in their midst and protect them rather than protect the people who are actually
3:03 am
paying taxpayer dollars. the governor took a shot at the president of the united states and his administration at a time of unprecedented political turmoil. jeff sessions has come to california to further divide and polarize america. jeff, these political stunts may be in the norm in washington they just don't work here. sad. > do you think this is a stunt, lisa. lisa: it's a stunt from the democratic party as well. trump called out democrats particularly congress the other day for not doing anything on daca. democrats controlled both bodies of congress and the white house and failed to get anything done on this. you could also say that democrats like senator kamala hairs are grandstanding themselves. look, she is looking ahead at 2020. we all know she might be running for president on the democratic ticket. i think there is some politics at play for them as well. brian: she wants to corner the market on the illegal vote. she has got it. steve: you have got to hope they can't actually vote in
3:04 am
california, right? meanwhile, she did tweet this out. trump and sessions think they can bully california, but it won't work. what are the three laws at play here? they were passed in the last year. one of them is senate bill 54. whether a that does is limit the cooperation between ice and the local jurisdictions. and then assembly bill 450. and it requires employers, if there is a raid, to say to the police officers the ice agents, i would like to see that warrant. i would like to seat paper before you come in to arrest people who should not be in country illegally. lisa: does that sound like bullying to you, brian? brian: i really believe this is spurred on by mostly what happened in our show. when you have the acting director of ice say what the mayor did warning the people in san francisco that the ice agents were coming days before and allowing them instead of picking up 950 to pick up a couple of hundred.
3:05 am
that was just showing we have the states against the federal government. it can't stand. that's why i believe the attorney general is out there more than anything else. lisa: if you are a california citizen, i mean, the main emphasis of the trump administration has been going after illegal criminal aliens. if you are a california citizen, aren't you a little bit concerned that your state seems to be so interested in protecting individuals that are here that potentially are doing harm? brian bine by the way, on a side note, san francisco who is overrun with homelessness and high taxes as a state happens to have also come out number one as the hardest working -- the people there are number one the hardest working people in the entire country. steve: that's great. brian: per cap attachment working hard for people that aren't paying into their system and don't belong here in many cases. steve: quantify working hard there are a lot of people who work really hard and i work hard. lisa: we work hard, i think. so. steve: we're here at 6:05 in the morning and it's snowing like crazy in a couple hours. two powerful house chairman
3:06 am
yesterday sent a letter to the attorney general and deputy attorney general. there you see, mr. goodlatte and mr. gowdy. what they are saying is we need -- the department of justice has gout to appoint a second special counsel. why? because of the fisa abuse. apparently the snooping laws were bent so badly during the last election and the department of justice cannot examine themselves. you need somebody else outside of the doj in the form of a special counsel because when you look at the inspector generate now, mr. horowitz, there's a lot he cannot do. lisa: trey gowdy was on "special report" last night talking about that very thing. >> what changed for me was the knowledge that there are two dozen witnesses that michael horowitz, the inspector general would not have access to. your options are doj investigate themselves. they can't do that because of conflict of interest. let the inspector general do it. i'm a big fan of michael
3:07 am
horowitz. he has no jurisdiction of witnesses when i counted up 24 witness that's would not be able to access were he to investigate it, only one conclusion that special counsel. >> who is on that list. >> for anyone who no longer works for the department of justice or the fbi. state department you may recall a couple weeks ago there were some indication state department employees were feeding information to fusion gps. they would be outside the reach of the enemier general. brian: these two sober very respected lawmakers. however, they are both leaving. they are going to start this engine up and heading out the door. steve: that's okay, as long as they start it up. brian: i trust them to oversee it. there are so many people there not at their level especially trey gowdy as an investigator. i worry about another special counsel. i'm wondering why people can't do their job and look into -- the president should declassify these fisa applications. maybe the last 10 including of course the dossier and
3:08 am
find out there is some abuse there why do we have to convene a separate counsel with a separate budget that's going to be wild catting. lisa: don't you think that the fact goodlatte and gowdy are retiring almost gives the fact that they're calling for a special counsel gives it more power and umph. they are out of the game. doesn't it give more credibility. steve: if you have got robert mueller and is he digging around looking at the russia thing. why not have somebody look at whether or not -- this is the scary part, if the department of justice and the fbi had bias and animus, because look at with mr. horowitz and his report is going to come out very promptly to look at the hillary clinton email scandal. he cannot talk to james comey, andrew mccabe because they both left. james rybicki the chief of staff over at the department of state. can't talk to sidney blumenthal, cody shearer.
3:09 am
victoria new land. he has no prosecutorial authority. he has no subpoena power. so bring in somebody who does, and get some answers. brian: right. who appoints them? does jeff sessions get to appoint the special prosecutor who would look at the doj? steve: he would. lisa: potentially, whoever looks at the inspector general could put some heat on attorney general jeff sessions to appoint a special counsel. we don't know what this report is going to say. he was the one that unearthed the text message exchange between peter strzok and lisa page. steve: the love birds. lisa: definitely digging in here. potentially that then gives is the impetus for another special counsel. brian: adam schiff, believe it or not was against this. as if on cue house republicans call for special counsel to investigate fisa abuse. in doing so republicans express interest in investigating everything except what is very important russia's interference.
3:10 am
and what we may do in the future. this may help serve the president's interest but does nothing to serve the national interest. i also think it would be great if the president announced and i hear it could be coming soon, homeland security a massive retaliation against russia. but, by all accounts. most people say i don't know anybody that does not believe they did everything they can to meddle in our election. and it would silence a lot of critics and make a lot of people feel better about 2018. steve: at the conclusion of the news conference yesterday with the swedish president. he said we are doing everything to crack down on russia. brian: go to paper ballots. i don't see any plan. dooz ando yousee any plan? steve: president trumin 2017 tht had 90% negative coverage. and now he has 91%. lisa: i find this to be the
3:11 am
most shocking story of the day. steve: it's the headline. brian: i mean, for example, by all rights, you should not be able to lead a show last night in prime time without not talking about north korea. i was curious to see how everything was playing. i don't think it hit the top five on other networks. when you talk about the number one rogue nation, the most dangerous threat to the u.s. according to president obama. and they made overtures the way they did that should at the very least be a lead story. all people david sanger of the "new york times" says you have got to credit president trump and the administration for getting to this point. that's why it didn't lead on any other network. that would have ban positive story. steve: we will do that story coming up shortly. statistics on the negative versus positive compiled by mrc media research center. brian: here is jillian who pledges to do the weather. lisa: i'm feeling very left out by the way. three of you sitting on the couch. no one me a red memo.
3:12 am
brian: because you have to dress like rob. that's your first allegiance. jillian: good enough. fox news alert. breaking news following out of missouri. a police officer killed, two others hospitalized responding to a 911 call. the man opening fire on the cops at a home in clinton, outside of kansas city. that man later found shot dead inside that home after barricading himself inside for hours. the tragedy comes seven months to the day after fellow clinton police officer gary michael was killed during a traffic stop. adult film star daniels suing president trump. daniels whose real name is stefanie clifford claims she had an affair with the president 2006-2007. her lawyer made her sign a nondisclosure agreement days before the election. she wants it voided because she said trump never signed it president trump promising to find a new chief economic advisor soon.
3:13 am
the commander-in-chief quote many people wanting the job will choose wisely. cohen refused to support proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. released the statement saying it had been an honor to serve in the white house. he will continue to serve for several more weeks. that's a look at your headlines, guys. send it back to you. steve: busy day. thank you very much. brian: i can't wait to see his replacement. will nfl anthem protests continue next season. enough to we may know. the players have spoken but so did some owners speak out. steve: record democratic turnout in texas could spell trouble for republicans heading into the mid terms we are wondering. we are going to break that down coming up next. e 'sleep number spring clearance event' on the only bed that adjusts on both sides to your ideal comfort, your sleep number setting. does your bed do that? it's the last chance for clearance savings up to $600 on our most popular beds. ends soon. visit sleepnumber.com for a store near you.

3:18 am
upshot here is 30 plus% of democrats voted for someone else. he has still got a lot of work to do to unify that base. they will need every democrat if he is going to even come close to challenging ted cruz in the fall. lisa: tom, the focus has been on the blue wave what does that mean for 2018 election? republicans also saw primary record turnout beating 2010 records as well. so why is the focus only been on democrat early primary voting and democrat turnout. >> because of what's happened in past elections, liz. lisa. democrat early voting was up. had doubled in the 15 most pop plus counties. democrats did cast more votes yesterday than they had in many years across statewide. governor's race, senate race. again, the upshot is texas is still pretty red at the statewide level. i think democrats are fighting uphill battle. texas isn't going to be turning blue any time soon. that being said, of course, there are three congressional races that democrats are heavily
3:19 am
focused on that were won by hillary clinton in 2016. fighting teeth and nail to win those seats in the fall. brian: a lot of people say very hard for a democrat to win a statewide election. it's been a while. the end of the bush dynasty overblown. george p. did prevail yesterday. >> and easily, brian. that was the thing. this was going to be seen as sort of a tough race for him. he was running against the guy who formerly held the job. but, george p., you know, he got endorsement of president trump. he got the endorsement of don jr. and he ended up winning going away. that was a bit of a surprise. the dynasty may still be alive. brian: now all focus will be on pennsylvania and the special election. what does that mean? they are in a virtual dead heat right now in a district that donald trump won easily and always seems to go to the republican. >> this is the next big test for plucks obviously special election wise. they have spent a ton of money there and it is neck
3:20 am
and neck. you talk to some democratic strategists think they are going to win that race easily partly because of the candidate that they have. conor lamb is a good candidate. rick saccone is not as good of a candidate for republicans that one is going to be fought. we will see what the ramifications are. obviously if republicans lose that district it will not bode well. if they win or lose it by a point or two or if they lose it by more than that will have ramifications moving forward. lisa: thanks, tom. a lot to look ahead to for 2018. brian: you bet. tom bevin, thank you so much. coming up on this show, she is a sanctuary city sheriff who won't back down, that means she is putting the lives of her deputies in danger in more ways than one. lisa: plus, he was a bullien the bus so his dad made him run to school. why he filmed the entire thing. did the dad go too far? stay tuned ♪

the wrong way with no one at the controls. not a good reason, i'm not buying it. steve, let's talk parenting. steve: all right, brian, thank you very much. a high school in massachusetts has apologized for their girl's basketball team that beat their opponents by 86 30eu7b9 86 -- p. what happened to the winning spirit? we bring in our panel. allege psychiatrist we need a lot of the those around here. mom, science professor and consultant as well. all right. so what message does it say that the superintendent of your school apologized because you won by a big number. professor, let me start with you. >> i don't think she needs to apologize. i also don't think they needed to win by what was it 97-3. they didn't even put. this is what bothers me the most having been a parent with kids that sit on the
3:26 am
bench sometimes. they didn't put in the kids that sit on the bench. they kept their first stringers out there the entire game. i don't think it was necessary. steve: apparently only seven kids suited up for the game: rob? >> we are sensing this theme of it's not okay to win. it's not okay to lose. the important thing is it an s. an important part of social development to lose, to get frustrated to be disappointed and learn ohio to overcome it it's okay to lose. we can't be afraid to lose and let our kids overcome it. >> and it's okay to win and celebrate it. my son is a basic player. and there are many games that they win there are a few that they lose. and they -- most the common thread though throughout all the games is the sportsmanship, guys. at the end of the day, it's not about the winning. it's not about the losing. it's about doing your best, playing your best. and if you win, phenomenal, great celebrate it and if
3:27 am
you lose, shake hands. steve: the lesson that okay, you won, you won really big. but sometimes the best lessons in life are when do you lose. and then it's like i'm never going to let that happen to me again. >> that's right. two parts. one part is overcome ago loss and coping with it. learning something is the big point. and the other thing is, are we taking away from the kids that are winning. >> i have to disagree with this. i'm sorry. you mentioned sportsmanship and i agree we should celebrate winning. we all lose in life we have to do that. this is a high school, an educational institution. when you box somebody you don't pummel them to the ground you beat them and do it gracefully. i don't think you keep those starter us out there the entire game. california has a mercy rule where the coaches by 35 points, if you are winning by 35. the coaches can agree to let the clock run down i do think there is
3:28 am
another side. i'm for winning but i don't think you need to destroy people because i'm a nice person unlike them. [laughter] >> i think the problem. >> i agree with you on that. i don't think she needed to apologize but i think out coaching could have been better. steve: i think that's the problem. the superintendent had a problem with the coach so why apologize and all the kids suddenly feel ashamed a little bit. meanwhile, take a look at this. apparently one father's son was bullying children, on the bus, and kicked off the bus for three days. what did the dad do? make him run to school in the rain. and it worked. watch. >> this right here is called parenting, guys. if you don't know what it's like, here did you go. teach your child a lesson. you don't have to kill them. you don't always have to beat them. sometimes it sucks for them and that's what teaches them. steve: there have you father brian thornhill talking about his approach to parenting. >> so my take on this is i
3:29 am
am all about teaching our children lessons. steve: right. >> especially if your child does something wrong you have to take action. steve: bullying is terrible and unacceptable. >> however, at the same time, the fact that the dad took this video and put it online and made it go viral to me just concerns -- it's a little concerning to me though about how the child might react after seeing this. steve: you don't think the kid is going hey dad way to go 8 million views. i'm famous. instagram. >> certain ways to go about parenting. that's just my own opinion. steve: professor? >> i say amen to him having the kid walk. i think our children today feel they are entitled to go on the bus and do what they want and get a ride. i say amen to going on the bus. i do have some concerns about the public humiliation of the boy by putting the video. on the other hand, say he did the right thing in terms of having the kid walk. he said his behavior has changed.
3:30 am
i think it worked. >> it sounds like it did. >> i agree with what's been said so far. consequences, discipline and structure is very important today. very, very important. one thing that's not being addressed, guys, is the bullying. when you punish a child, you don't really change the behavior. you only teach the tid how to avoid getting caught. that's a fact. what's going on with the bullying? why is it not being addressed? bully something a symptom, guys. does the kid have a poor self-esteem? is he getting bullied himself? that needs to be addressed specifically with the child to change his behavior so he stops bullying. steve: so do you agree with the panel or not, email us at "fox & friends." they will be back in a little while. also email us or facebook us. thank you very much. next on the rundown. joe biden finally admits what you have known all along. >> some people in my party don't even get it anymore. they don't get it.

steve: yesterday, the exit polls showed that the number of democrats who voted in the primary went way up, far outpaced the number of republicans so something is going on there. >> something definitely is going on. i watched it for the last two years. you are seeing it in the urban centers. here's the thing, i'm in california now. most people from california are going to texas. why? because they like the low regulations in texas. then they get to texas and they want to turn it into california. i don't quite understand it but i think there are enough conservatives, enough republicans in texas to keep it red. i'm not worried. lisa: tomi, speaking of texas, there is a liberal texas sheriff who is refusing to give deputies life saving body armor because she refuses to hold -- or because sorry, refusing to hold and arrest illegal immigrants. so they cannot be processed. what do you think texans
3:37 am
think of that? >> texans are not going to be happy about this. americans should not be happy about this. this is what i don't understand about the democratic party. why have they made it their official party platform to cuddle illegal immigrants? i don't understand it. i can't imagine how democrats, real democrats feel about this. this is a change. the democratic party used to be about working class americans. now it's about illegal immigrants. and this sheriff, placing illegal immigrants over police officers, texans aren't going to like it and americans aren't going to like it. i don't think voters aren't going to like it either. brian: the hope is the hispanic community thinks pro-hispanic thing to do. especially in texas. and the other thing to keep in mind, too. is that they are trying to hand out -- democrats are trying to push poor a census no longer have to declare you are an american citizen. this could be part of a biggser plan. let's go over to joe biden for a second. by all accounts i think he is going to be running for president again. he actually called out his

3:39 am
right. this kind of message would propel the democratic party and give us a run for our money, but i don't think they are going to adopt it i do think though that joe biden is a threat to the republican party. i think he could the only threat to donald trump. we have got to keep our eye on him. taking all the partisan politics aside. i like what he is say. i believe in what he is saying. i don't care that he is a democrat. i like his message. brian: it's important he had that special election and both candidates have embraced the president's tariffs because they think it's pro-for the american worker. tomi lahren thank you so much. >> thank you, guys. steve: 21 minutes before the top of the hour, i believe it's time for some news with jillian. jillian: that's right, guys. from all the way over here on the other side of the studio. good morning. good morning to you at home. let's start here, education secretary betsy devos will visit students and teachers at the florida high school today where 17 people were shot and killed last month. this, as the survivor speaks

3:48 am
points of their foreign policy. and the reason is obvious. it was just way too hard. that's allowed the north koreans to build icbms to. build potentially as many as six nuclear weapons. 5,000 tons of chemical weapons. so president trump circumstantiaessentially americt and made it asia first. that's the big difference here answered deserves all the credit for that. brian: from where we are right now. we have been here before. now we have a very liberal in south korea who is over there is he going to be invited back in april to have another leader to lead the meeting. is he pushing for us to do something and maybe answer. they said they will put their nuclear program on hold. they don't promise to stop making missiles. they, of course, their ultimate goal is to get us to withdraw from the peninsula because their national security would no longer be at stake. we have not shelved any war games that we prom missed to do this spring. so what would be the right next step for this administration? >> very simple. i think what president trump needs to understand is essentially he is dealing with a negotiating with no

attorney general is out there. how did it end in a standoff. >> standoff sanctuary cities and money. legal standoff is this. california enacted three statutes. one of them just studies the way the program government that's not what we are worried about. we are worried about a statute that prohibits state, county, and local employees from communicating with federal authorities. and even more troublesome is a statute that prohibits private business owners from communicating to the feds. you own a shop, a restaurant, a bookstore or clothing store, and the feds walk in your store and say by the way, lisa, do you employ any illegals or do you know of any people around here? if you answer, no matter what the answer is, you have mitt add crime under california law. how could that be? the first amendment says congress shall make no law bridging the freedom of speech and that applies to the state that challenge, i think, will succeed. the more troublesome one is can california direct its employees not to cooperate

4:04 am
foreign policy. steve: does this end the sanctuary city, sanctuary state business? >> best way to end it is with money the way i described. lawsuits take a long time. i'm happy they are filing the lawsuits. i'm happy because the president has been asking for it he has been asking for it in his tweets and in private. i understand the president's frustration. we were talking about this before the break. i really think if they pass a trump budget and give all these cities all the money that they have been getting under the obama years, with these strings attached, you know they are cash-strapped. they will never say no to the cash. once they take the cash they have to cooperate. lisa: congressman gowdy and goodlatte are calling for a second special counsel. we have seen increase in calls from people like nunes and others. gowdy says that the reason being is there are certain witnesses that the -- actually, take a listen to this real quick. >> what changed for me was the knowledge that there are
4:05 am
two dozen witnesses that michael horowitz, the inspector general would not have access, to your options are doj investigated themselves. they can't do that because of conflict of interest. let the inspector general do it. i'm a big fan of michael horowitz, he has no jurisdiction of the witnesses when i counted up 24 witness that's would not be able to access were he to investigate it. only one conclusion that special counsel. >> who is on that list. >> anyone who no longer works for the department of justice or the fbi. state department. you may recall a couple of weeks ago there was some indication the state department employees were feeding information to fusion g.p.s. they would be outside out reach of the inspector general. lisa: does trey gowdy make a point. >> yes, he does. inspector general very decent guy inspector general under george w. bush as well as barack obama. basically a think of internal affairs in a police department. a mini doj within the doj, investigates the rest of the doj. but, if you have left your
4:06 am
job, like andrew mccabe or james comey. brian: can't get him. >> he doesn't have authority to bring them in, ask them questions. that's trey gowdy's point. a special counsel would. now, full disclosure, i am fearful of special counsels because history shows that they do all sorts of things, just to justify their existence. brian: we're seeing it now, aren't we? >> right. the initial indictments had to do with money laundering before trump was a candidate and nothing to do with him. do we really want a special counsel or do we want bob mueller to look at this? actually save a good deal of money. >> it involves russia and did he recuse himself? that means that rod rosenstein would pick. but who signed off on the four fisa application? rod rosenstein. is he going to appoint somebody to investigate himself? these are the conflicts that keep coming up. lisa: isn't the concern with mueller that there is already -- his investigation is already too wide ranging. wouldn't that add to that? >> yes it would, lisa.
4:07 am
it would save the government at love money because these special counsels take a long time to gear up. bob mueller already has a dozen or so prosecutors and a few dozen fbi agents working for him. >> if you are interested getting answers. >> i have been a harsh critic of fisa. i believe the abuse has been going on since 1978. having signed warrants when fisa became law. having signed warrants myself. i never heard of a judge or team judges that grants 99.96% of all applications. this is what happens when the court meets in secret and there is no adversary. i think fisa needs to go. but i also think that these abuses need to be exposed. the american public needs to know who in the government is abusing their rights. who used the power of the government to frustrate the candidacy of donald trump? steve: who leaks? that's the big question as well. listen to trey gowdy on this. >> anyone who has watched congress over the last 12 months, we leak lik like sieves.
4:08 am
executive branch investigations whether it's local district attorney or bob mueller, there are far fewer leaks from bob mueller than there are from adam schiff. brian: he is indicting his own body. >> i share his frustration. i personally know of the president's frustration. and having been in the government myself, it is deeply frustrating. when everybody in a room finite number of people agrees something has to be kept secret and 15 minutes it's out there and you don't know how the heck it got out. schiff protection. they can't be sued criminally, civilly or ethically what they say. steve: isn't that on the floor of the house. >> doesn't have to be on the floor. weight on the floor or pursuit of committee work. translation, he can leak. steve: and he does. >> yes. brian: mueller investigation

4:10 am
a question. >> right. the collusion part would be did donald trump know about it and approve it. steve: so far the people who have gotten in trouble with mueller not related to collusion. related to you stuff that happened a long time ago. >> right. brian: do you know larry kudlow? do you think larry kudlow would do a good job. >> i know and don't misread me i love larry kudlow. free market. more than gary cohn. brian: he hates the tariffs. >> i don't think the president is going to go in that direction. i would love if he did. kudlow would have the same problem that kohn. kohnbrian. >> very important couch. where is jillian. steve: right behind you. brian: can you look at her. >> i was on her show about six hours ago it seems. brian: obviously it didn't go well you won't look at each other.

4:18 am
of those small businesses. so it's very positive news. we are looking forward to hearing from the president talking about how this is helping the economy and other things the administration is doing to help those small businesses. steve: sure. of course, that tax cut is also helping the republicans and i have heard that democrats in the last week or two tried to spin their way into it being a bad deal. it just sounds comical. >> it's hard for it to be a bad deal when people are seeing increases their paychecks. when small business optimism is all-time high. stock market has been growing. this has been very, very positive and a long time in coming. this is good news. but there is more to come and the president is going to be talking about that today at our meeting at the latino coalition. steve: i would imagine he is going to get some questions about the tariff suggestions as well. 25% tariff on imported steel. 10% on aluminum. >> you know, one of the things you've got to remember, steve, is that the majority of businesses that do export and importing are small businesses.
4:19 am
buff they only represent 30% of all the trade dollars. so, when you level the playing field, you could be helping a lot of those small businesses. we don't want to see a trade war. we are protrade. we want to do more trade. most of the customers that we're going to be working with in the future live outside of the united states. this is going to be important. we will have to see how it plays out. steve: so far during this administration, you know, the president has talked about for every new regulation we have cut two or three. i think i saw closer to 10 or something like that. in one of those online blogs, not positive what the actual number is have you got to like the fact that washington is cutting their own red tape. >> it's critically important. that's probably one of the most unknown things that is going on right now. one of the reasons that the economy is starting to grow again. we have taken our foot off the brake. we this that brake on for years. and now the president is rolling back a lot of those regulations, especially the unnecessary ones. and leveling that playing field. steve: sure. >> for all of those small businesses.
4:20 am
we think that's very, very positive. steve: one other thing, big item on your agenda is infrastructure because a lot of your small businesses would be involved with any big projects. >> there is no doubt about it. we have secretary chao is going to be with us today and secretary acosta with us. we have a full day. $1.5 trillion in potential infrastructure projects. and we want to make sure small business gets their fair share of those contracts beings. steve: you will be right there. hector, chairman of the latino coalition, we thank you for joining us from our nation's capital. have a great day. >> thank you. steve: 7:20 here in new york city. if you are going to run from the cops, better put your car in park. oh my. the life lesson learned the hard way all caught on camera. as it runs over him. plus, way beyond the call of duty. the marine donating his kidney to save a fellow marine. they will both join us live next. ♪ ♪

have ever met military families, they are often the most mature, smartest, because they are forced to grow up so quick because they are always moving to a different place. they have got to be outgoing and that's another example. lisa: i feel like they are constantly leading by example as well as we just saw with interviewing those two marines. steve: sure, if the guy's flag was tattered and they saw it every day we have got to do something to help that family so they did. brian: i went to glenn beck's house do you know what to t. takes to get rid of a flag the right way. fire department come in and burn the flag the right way. steve: very complicated to retire a flag. meanwhile, it's take you down to austin, texas. austin sits in travis county, texas. and the sheriff there, a woman by the name of sally hernandez, some have suggested she does not want her deputies to get bullet-proof vests. here's why. in the last year, texas governor greg abbott put aside $23 million of resources to fund new
4:35 am
bullet-proof vests. but there is a stipulation. if you want the money, you've got to cooperate with ice. and the sheriff does not want to cooperate with ice, and that means she doesn't get the money for the vests. lisa: we had tomi lahren on earlier today and asked her about this. >> this is what i don't understand about the democratic party. why have they made it their official party platform to cuddle illegal immigrants? i don't understand it i can't imagine how democrats, real democrats feel about this. this is a change. the democratic party used to be about working class americans. now it's about illegal immigrants. and this sheriff placing illegal immigrants over police officers, texans aren't going to like it. americans aren't going to like it. i don't think voters are going to like it either. brian: she is 100 percent right. if you look at these polsters and see their reaction, average americans reaction to chain migration as well as the lottery. and have you the whole thing with building up the border.

that's not really republican-democrat issue. for the most part people on the same page it's how they do it and if you trust the pathway to citizenship. so i think she is right on that. lisa: also, if your voter is heading into the midterm elections. have you one party that is fixated on illegal immigrants in this country trirntio.and another brought tax reform to american citizens talking about benefiting american citizens' lives and bringing jobs back to the economy. a little bit of juxtaposition there. steve: big question do the sanctuary city policies make you feel safe or not? we asked but this earlier and andrew tweeted i don't know when liberal police and politicians got the idea they can pick and choose which laws they want to or have to enforce or follow. great question. brian: corey says this: why is the governor playing politics with protecting police in this case the mayor. if those vests are going to help them, why put any stipulations on getting them?

the president might be a good pick to replace him who has your values and ideolog ideology? >> so i looked at long list that came out today. there is some good names on there. people i have worked with before like larry kudlow, mick mulvaney, others. i think the president is going to have a really good list to choose from. it's a very important position. we work so closely with them on tax reform. on trade, on getting the economy getting. so i'm -- the president will make a good choice. brian: one thing with the president i have seen you with the president. paul ryan with the president. we watch you guys all together. good chemistry respect each other. you could not be farther apart from him when it came to tariffs on steel and aluminum. five days you have spoken out and the speaker has spoken out. what do you think is happening here? >> the president feels stronger about trade. here's my point. look, is he going after the bad actors, the people who cheat on steel and aluminum and cost us american jobs. we are all with him on that. the problem is the approach.

a stand in liberal state in the face of president trump we'll end sanctuary cities. it's a magnet for illegals to come there. they know they are protected by the locals. federal government stepped. i give the attorney general credit. he went out to california to try to push for this law to be enforced. steve: yeah, what he is going to do sue california over three laws they passed. jerry brown, very liberal governor of the very liberal state, said in a tweet in time of unprecedented political turmoil jeff sessions came to california to further divide and polarize america. jeff, he addresses him directly, these political stunts may be the norm in washington but they don't work here. sad. you know what? as we look back at what california has done over the last 10 days or so, how did this work when the mayor of oakland, california, essentially said, on

the federal level. we've seen pushback to variety of president trump's immigration policies included to the travel pause to sanctuary cities and beyond. brian: courts are giving him trouble. five minutes to the top of the hour. at about 5:30 yesterday before "special report," a letter was released by bob goodlatte, trey gowdy, i have a request, i i hae a request nor another special counsel to look into fisa dispute. we can't have the department of justice do it because they're in the middle of it. we don't believe in congressional body because we leak like sieves. trey gowdy, why he wants another special counsel. >> what thanked for me, the knowledge that two dozen witnesses michael horowitz, inspector general would not have access to. option, doj investigate themselves. they can't do that because of conflict of interest. let the inspector general do it. i'm a big fan of mike horowitz.
5:07 am
he has no jurisdictionses over witnesses, i counted up 24 witnesses he would not be able to access were he to investigate it, only one conclusion. special counsel. >> who is on that list. >> anyone who no longer works for the department of justice or the fbi. state department, you may recall a couple weeks ago there was indication that state department employees were feeding information to fusion gps. they would be outside the reach of the inspector general. lisa: democratic congressman adam schiff had to weigh if here. he is no stranger to the camera, he said as if on cue, hoist republicans call for appointment of special counsel to investigate fisa abuse, in so doing republicans investigate their interest everything but what is most important, russia's interference in our election. this may help serve the president's interests but does
5:08 am
nothing to serve the national interest. of course he is pushing back, steve. steve: if the department of justice and the fbi abused the fisa powers that would be terrible. it looks like, in fact this particular letter laid out what they would be interested in looking into. the decisions made or not made by the department of justice before and after the election. also, any evidence of bias or animus among those investigating. we've already heard a little bit about that from people at the fbi. they would look into whether or not it was clearly laid out that it was clearly described as opposition research. easy for me to say, in presenting and getting the fisa application because it wasn't fully revealed. so those are some of the things they would like a special prosecutor, special counsel, to look into. brian: but do we need another -- america is being tortured by robert mueller's worldwide mystery tour that we don't know where it is going to lead.
5:09 am
we know pieces show up every three or four weeks, everyone is surprised by it. we know an endless money sieve, money goes down the drain for that. my sense i would love to see in this process particular, the president declassify the fisa application. if that looks as though it has problems maybe would indicate there are other problems. lisa: gowdy is saying we do need a special counsel earnings the country. steve: get to the answer. >> anyone that watched congress over the last 12 months, we leak like serves, i say we, only because i'm a member of congress. serious investigations don't leak. local district attorney, bob mueller, there are far fewer leaks from bob mueller than there are from adam schiff. steve: ultimately the department of justice can not investigate the department of justice. we would like answers. wouldn't you like to know if the fbi and department of justice put their thumb on the scale

represents the state of new york. he is a liberal. you represent a more conservative state a very rural state. senator chuck schumer's position on guns does not match your state's. do you feel conflicted or caught in the middle? >> i'm not conflicted at all. i believe in the second amendment, i believe it strongly. i have more guns than i need but less guns than i want. you need it to be in the hand of who understand guns and process keep people safe. law-abiding citizens i will fight to the death to make sure the folks have second amendment rights. criminals, terrorists, folks that have court adjudicated mental illness i just don't think those are the right people to have guns. brian: absolutely. just how we disseminate that. talk about what you focus on this week, banking. rolling back dodd-frank, well intended, not well-executed. where do we go from here? >> i can tell you coming from a rural state, community banks, credit unions are important for

5:25 am
sued for restricting campus protests. now time for a roundtable discussion. brian: he was a bully on the bus. so his dad made him run to school, he talked about it while he filmed the whole thing. >> this right here is called parenting guys. if you don't know what it is like, here you go. teach a child a lesson. you don't have to kill them. you don't as you have to beat them. sometimes it sucks for them. that is what teaches them. brian: did his dad go too far? bring in the parenting panel. the ceo of diva moms.com. dr. dominic sportelli is here. a psychiatrist and jeanie is a mom, political science professor and consultant. jeanie, start with you, is this good parenting? >> the statement we heard is not good parenting. i don't think you have to beat your child for anything. brian: he says you don't always have to beat. >> he is right in terms of punishment. what i have problem with two things. i don't like post video.
5:26 am
i get worried about humiliating by posting video. he was right to have him walk to school. the child should not be bullying. address the cause of bullying so it doesn't happen again. i worried the father had bullying tendencies about posting video. that is concern about posting. brian: you doesn't learn to be bully. you wonder what was happening at home? >> bullying is symptom, right? so when a child is bullying you have to look deeper what is going on. when you look at this particular punishment, the kid is associating i don't get to go on the bus, that kind of stinks. but we need the kid to associate why he is not on the bus. he is not on the because he was bullying somebody. let's address that. brian: you want to weigh in quick? >> really quickly, again i think that it is important that parents are taking action and if our children are bullies, that they are doing something about it, not just sitting back allowing it to happen. hough, this personally, i think there are other ways to
5:27 am
discipline. if this is the way he did it, i don't think we needed to see the video go viral. brian: switch over to football, youth football. something comes up with parents. a lot of divorce situations. said one parent decides i want my kid to play football. the other says with all going on you really want him to play football? this ends up being in family court battling it out. dominic, where you stand on this. >> we absolutely no there is link to head trauma and inseparate love pa brain damage with kids. if you start playing football under the age of 12 you likely had increased chance of having behavioral problems, emotional problems, cognitive problems. that was a good study but there were certainly flaws in that study. we need more research. i don't want the legislation to get ahead of science here. brian: plus we've had generations of people playing sports, over 100 years, football, the most popular game
5:28 am
in the country. hockey is very physical. soccer, heading the ball at three years old, four years old. where do you stand? kid wants to play. can they be involved, end up in family court? >> it was stunning to me to see lawyers are saying this is happening increasingly. used to happen more in hockey, but increasingly in football, as dr. dominic got so much press in terms of the concussion issue. you areunfortunate the parents couldn't work this out. other side, this is 17-year-old boy. he really wanted to play and his doctors cleared him to play. i'm biased. my son plays football. brian: great character sport. >> great character building. i understand the father's concerns given research but i feel like the doctor who looked at him cleared him to play. he is 17. he did end up playing. he was fine n this case i really felt like he was old enough to make a decision. brian: they could put pressure on the youth game and pop warner, flag a little bit longer? a lot of professional football
5:29 am
players don't let kids play tackle until ninth grade. >> i have two sons. they're not playing football. they have chosen not to play. however they choose to play when they're older that will be a discussion we will have then but going back to this case i see both sides from both parents. hopefully that the kid will make the right choice whatever he decides to happen. he is 17. brian: i know. this is common, we're seeing that at pro level. college level, and seeing it at youth level. thanks so much, guys. great job. more than a quarter million west virginia kids go back to school today. there was a nine-day teachers strike as governor jim justice brought the pay raise up 5%. he joins us live next. a church handing out thousands of dollars to their parishioners, there is just one catch. we'll tell you about it. ♪

west virginians. good day in lot of different ways. west virginia is on the move. when i came into being 14 months ago we were having a pretty tough go of it. we put together a lot of different things with a lot of people. i surely don't take all the credit by any stretch of the imagination. we're growing at 4.71% now. we're really, truly on the move. yesterday was the day that we stepped up to the plate and said, education ought to be our centerpiece. i said that on day one. not only should it be our centerpiece. it should be something we invest in. we're drifting in education nationally as well as in west virginia and a lot of places and so nevertheless yesterday was really, really a great day. steve: it is too bad there had to be a nine-day strike. the kids missed out on over a week's worth of school. you wound up giving teaches on average a 5% raise. where is the money going to come from? >> like i said we're growing. we moved from a

500 million-dollar deficit 14 months ago, to black numbers today. we have got the money. we're moving ahead and everything but, it is a shame that we had to a work stoppage for nine days. our kids are out of school. that was number one emphasis we had to do. we had to get our kids back in school, but absolutely, you know, we should, we should appreciate the effort of the teachers. it took a long time for us all to get on board behind this effort and look at it in the right way. i said this a bunch times, a little kid, sixth-grader, gideon, looked a the me in one of the town hall meetings, governor, why can't you look at education an investment in me to where i can become a smart person and come back to west virginia or stay in west virginia and do great things? all along i have said education should be our centerpiece, it should be an economic driver, and maybe i drifted a little bit away. so i think it is the right thing
5:36 am
to do. lisa: governor, real quick, those are saying that this is testament to the strength of organized labor. we see this across the country more? >> i don't think that would be the case at all. i mean this was, this was an effort with a lot of us, a lot, a lot, a lot of people that spoke out and spoke out in a positive way to invest in education. this wasn't necessarily a labor movement at all in my opinion. this was, no one was trying to pound somebody a round peg into a square hole. it was not that. it was not one side against the other. it was the side that believed that maybe we didn't have the money to do it, and another side that believed that we should, we should do it and invest in education and so. it took a while for us to all to get together but this was anything but a labor movement in my opinion. steve: governor, before you go, you said you got the money now because you're in the black.

5:46 am
for anything he can find. you think the president should do what regarding any testimony? >> i don't think he should testify. i do that on basis of my knowledge of the deputy chief of the mueller organization, and that's andrew weissmann. i think that, and the availability of prosecutions for false statements is so broad, that, whatever the president says, they will look for some discrepancy andand indict him. brian: for perjury. >> for making a false statement. lisa: you said you tried several cases against him, andrew weissmann. why are you concerned about him specifically? >> i find while he is talented he will veer towards prosecuting the person who ought not to be prosecuted. in the enron case he secured a
5:47 am
conviction and the court of appeals set it aside because he withheld key evidence. that is a mark against him and indication he can't be trusted. brian: when you look at the probe, where it has been so far this year, we have seen a roster people implicated and spoken to. >> yes. brian: do you think this is on the up and up? do you have faith in robert mueller as condoleeza rice does no. >> what mueller is doing indicting a host of people counting on one or more to cooperate. but the cooperators have to be generally examined with great skepticism. a informer, somebody who cooperates is suspect. so he is indicting a host of people to bring pressure on them in the hope that one or more will cooperate. he used the logan act when flynn
5:48 am
was indicted is shocking because the logan act was passed at the time of alien and sedition act was passed by a congress in 1799. nobody has been prosecuted successfully. two people went to trial on that, and it has never been used. but it demonstrates how desperate the special counsel is to indict as many people as possible in the hope that one or more will turn and that's typical in a criminal investigation. steve: jay, stormy daniels is in the news. she apparently is saying that the non-disclosure agreement that she had with the trump organization was invalid because he never signed it. >> i think it is true if, an agreement, you need the signature of both parties and if there is no signature by him, it
5:49 am
is not valid. non-disclosure agreements are looked at with skepticism because it impairs negatively on the right of free speech. steve: jay goldberg, former attorney for president trump. lisa: thanks for your time, jay. >> all right. nice to be here. steve: on this snowy day. meanwhile a liberal student at gw university pens an op-ed shaming conservatives. one student is not having it, writing a rebuttal. she will join us live next. brian: let's check in with bill hemmer, best off "special report" yesterday. we made him go outside. bill, great job last night. >> thank you, running from the snow, brian, that is what we'ring doing. good morning, we're live at the white house this morning, "america's newsroom," a major resignation and a day when the administration is taking on the state of california. sarah sanders will address all of that live here today. republicans on the hill, they want to investigate the department of justice. were they spying on the trump campaign at the end of 2016? trey gowdy answers that
